Our Lady: “broad consensus” for a reconstruction of the arrow “identical”, according to Bachelot

Notre-Dame: «large consensus» pour une reconstruction de la flèche «à l'identique», selon Bachelot

PARIS | The new Culture minister Roselyne Bachelot has been estimated that a “broad consensus” was to rebuild “the same,” the spire of the cathedral Notre-Dame of Paris, while a consultative commission meets Thursday on this topic.

It appears “that there is a broad consensus in public opinion and (in) decision-makers — since in the end, it will, I think, the president of the Republic, who will decide — for the reconstruction of the same,” she said on France Inter radio, adding, “it is always hard to say “identical” exactly, but in the spirit of the arrow”.

Roselyne Bachelot said she would go Thursday afternoon “to greet the structure that manages this folder, which will make its conclusions”.

The national Commission of heritage and architecture in canada (fpcc), which brings together elected officials, experts and architects from the construction site, must discuss on Thursday the modalities of the reconstruction of Notre-Dame, partly destroyed by fire in April 2019.

“Three records” are to be examined: the roof, the roof, and the arrow pointed to the minister of Culture.

The issue of an identical reconstruction of the arrow, according to the detailed plans left by the architect Viollet-le-Duc, or the reverse, including a gesture to contemporary architectural, as mentioned by the executive shortly after the fire giant, is subject to debate for months.

The architect-in-chief Philippe Villeneuve, the best connoisseur of the cathedral, is clearly hostile to the second option, which would take in addition much more time.

Pushed back due to the confinement, the delicate dismantling of the scaffolding that surrounds Our Lady, bent and welded by the heat of the fire, will be completed “no later than the end of September”, has insured a week ago, general Jean-Louis Georgelin, president of the public Establishment in charge of the conservation and the restoration of the cathedral.

This removal is conditional to the ability to start the restoration proper of Notre-Dame, that the president Macron would like to see rebuilt in a period of five years.
